The Youth Olympic Flame (JYOF) torch takes its design inspiration from fire and water.

Fire represents the Youth's passion and burning desire to learn and excel, blazing the trail in life. Water represents Singapore, with its origins as a seaport; and the vibrant and dynamic nature of Singapore as an island city-state.

The torch was designed to combine the dual elements of fire and water, with the water wave on the torch body and a flaming fire on top.

Safety Lantern

Safety lanterns are used to transport the Youth Olympic Flame when not carried by a torchbearer.

At the start of each relay day, the Youth Olympic Flame is taken from the safety lantern to light the torch. At the end of the day, the Flame from the torch is transferred to the safety lantern for safeguarding.

A number of safety lanterns are kept alight with the Youth Olympic Flame in case the Flame carried by the torch or other device go out unexpectedly (e.g. from high winds). In addition, the safety lanterns continue to hold the Flame during the duration of the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games (Singapore 2010).

Not a bad torch :P of course I agree that is similar to Beijing's one, but looking well it gives the impression on how it's inspired in the logo (check the red burner and the purple bottom)

Now that I see that torches are inspired in the games' brand I'm starting to worry about how London 2012 and Sochi 2014 torches will look :(

Strange pov given that neither London nor Sochi have revealed their detailed branding yet, only the logos.

Not sure what you mean...the Singapore YOGs are only a few months away so of course they will be pushing things out before London and Sochi..
